Holcim (Texas) LP will donate 123 acres of land to the City of Midlothian, Texas, for the development of a park and an agriculture education facility, following the City Council’s unanimous vote to approve the donation as well as a rezoning request by the company for part of its property.
The parcel is part of a 317-acre site owned by Holcim. The new park and education center will be separated from the plant site by a buffer zone and a 20- foot landscaped berm.
In addition to the 60-acre park and the agricultural center, plans for the parcel include a nature center and a 2.5-mile trail that will wrap around the property’s perimeter. The park will provide new open space to the community for organized sports, family outings and other activities.
Holcim (US) is one of the nation’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of cement and mineral components.
